    Hi,
    Google will switch between https and http (and vice versa) without any noticeable link juice loss - as long as the links (apart from prefix) are identical. However if you want to make sure that your links return to http, and not leave it to Google or chance, then a 301 redirect will force the change.

    Hi,
    Google announced that https is a ranking signal. However, just a month later, Google's John Mueller said in a hangout, "I wouldn't expect any visible change when you move from http to https, just from that change, for SEO reasons. The ranking effect is very small and very subtle.
